Spanish Rice

spanish rice

Another rice post? Well, yes, I believe so!  Since we are currently staying at my parent's house, I try to make dinner to help out.  I usually go through the fridge and cabinets and see what's available to make.  I never thought I was good at that but it's been fun!  The other night was Mexican night so I made some spanish rice.  Here's what I did.

olive oil
1 small or 1/2 a large onion, chopped
1 garlic clove, chopped
1/2 bell pepper, chopped
1 1/2 cups white rice
1 can whole, peeled tomatoes
4 cups chicken broth
salt, to taste

Heat olive oil in pan.  Throw in onion and bell pepper.  Saute for a couple of minutes.  Throw in garlic and saute until lightly browned.  Pour in rice.  Cook until light brown and almost clear.  Add tomatoes (including the sauce), crushing each tomato in hand.  Add chicken broth 2 cups at a time, letting it cook away, about 30 minutes.  If rice is not tender, continue adding chicken broth a little at a time.  Salt to taste.

Speaking of food, there's a fabulous giveaway here to win Make It Fast, Cook It Slow!

Hi Jen--Your Spanish rice looks absolutely delicious! I'm sure it was well received by your family! Mr. GFE is such a fan of rice. I'll have to make this one for him for sure. :-)

Thanks so much for announcing the giveaway of Steph's great cookbook!

Best,
Shirley
